Child Employment

Gaining a part time job can be a great experience, boost confidence and be very rewarding. You must be at least 13 years old to be able to gain paid employment. You must also be registered with Darlington Borough Council, when starting any part time work - it is your employer's responsibility to request a work permit, but you or your parents can ask for an application form. There are strict rules that apply to when, how long and where you can work. For more information or to download an application form see the below link:
